Mechanical-Electronic-Hydraulic Integration: Light Load Linear Reciprocating Motion Device Having Variable Frequency, Displacement and Velocity
The light load linear reciprocating motion device driven by a small-size pneumatic cylinder is most economical, but its velocity and location precision is not good. When substituting the drive for small-size hydraulic cylinder, the significant shortcoming is environmental pollution. If the motion is achieved through rolling screw-nut mechanism driven by stepping motor, the space layout is very inconvenient. A light load linear reciprocating motion device integrating mechanical, electronic and hydraulic technology is designed. In this device, the motion is achieved through short-stroke rolling screw-nut mechanism driven by stepping motor, and then amplified by a splendid internal reflux area effect stroke amplifier. This device has the following noticeable advantages: (1) The location of output hydraulic cylinder is as convenient as common pneumatic or hydraulic cylinder. (2) The frequency, displacement and velocity of reciprocating motion can be altered convenient by programming. (3) Higher position precision. (4) The hydraulic fluid in the device is enclosed, so there is no environmental pollution causing by oil leakage and volatilization.
